Comedian Roseanne Barr is still vying to be on the ballot in November. She hopes to represent the Green Party.
Earlier this year, Barr announced she would try to be the party’s nominee.
“I will barnstorm American living rooms,” she vowed. “Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election.”
That was in February. Since then, she hasn’t done very much barnstorming, and Massachusetts physician Jill Stein is the presumptive nominee. But Barr has no intention of quitting.
“Candidate Barr is still campaigning for the Green Party. I don’t have any other official word at this time. She has definitely not dropped from the race. If and when we get any changes to this, we will put out a press release immediately,” wrote spokeswoman Anita Stewart on Wednesday.
Earlier in the week, Barr took to Twitter to champion her cause. She argued that she should get to speak at the convention because she “received nearly ALL votes by ppl of color.”
Apart from her sitcom and comedy, Barr is well-known for her singing of the National anthem.
